Welcome to Lava Lounge Interactive, Inc.

For over 18 years, I have been fortunate enough to build sites for all types of businesses. From those who just need a quick site redesign, to companies who boast several Billions in annual sales. This range of clients has allowed me to create designs that push the envelope to clean designs for a more corporate look and feel.

Working in the world of the public library afforded me the opportunity to increase my front and back end development skills, by helping a large suburban public library redesign their adult, teen and kids web sites using the CMS platform, Drupal. I have created emails for large e-commerce sites and pharma companies, helped an boutique agency with the development of WordPress sites for thier clients. Most recenlty I have played a key role in both the design and CMS implementation/migration of Elgin Community College's website.

Please take a minute to look around and be sure to check out the HTML5/CSS3 responsive websites, Illustrations, Identity, and Online Promotions.

Drop me a line at doug@lavainc.com and let's talk about how my online expertiece can help increase your organizations online web presence.
